    Hello,

    anyone aware if there will be a samsung software to sync outlook (calendar, contacts and tasks) to the Captivate?

    I actually own an Iphone 3G and the sync is verry smooth. I want to to leave apple but I'm reallyt concern about being able to sync my outlook (without exchange).

    Thanks for your help

    From the galaxy S forums it seems it will sync just fine with outlook.

    Thanks, what a relief for me.

    Could you give me the link to the forum you are talking about?

    Thanks

    I'm seeing Samsung Kies as the desktop sync software, but don't seem to be able to see anything at the link.

    The Kies programs does a straight forward job of syncing the contacts from outlook which is how I transferred from my Samsung Eternity as I wanted all the extra info the sim card wouldn't carry over.

    Are you guys running the latest Kies?
    http://samsung-firmware.webs.com/samsungkies.htm
    Might be an idea to check.
    It's the last one listed.
    The previous Kies had an issue with the USB drivers.
    After installing Kies I ran the Driver Recovery underneath the Kies tab on teh upper left it reinstalled the driver and OMG I am in heaven I don't have to pay for another program if I do not want to.

    Kies_1.5.1.10071_32.exe is the one that I couldn't get to work last and it seems like it's the latest one.

    I have spent quite a while on the phone with Samsung. They will be coming out with a downloadable USB sync software for Outlook in September. I downloaded the one on their website but found out it was for Europe. I have read their 194 page manual and couldn't find the answer.

    Don't sweat it, if you have an exchange account it's really smooth to sync with outlook.

    Before I hooked mine up, I used google calendar sync and created a gmail account to synchronize my outlook and gmail calendars.

    YES. I use Kies to sync with Outlook, for my contacts and calendar. No special tricks or mods are required - Kies has the Outlook sync functionality built-in. I just haven't found a way to sync it using Bluetooth yet, like I could with my old BlackBerry, and I have to plug in with USB.

    I am one who does NOT want to use Google's sync because I don't like managing my contacts with Google (partly because anyone you e-mail becomes a contact and you end up with a huge list of junk contacts to sift thru). I prefer to keep using Outlook.

    Incidentally, there are a few apps in the Market for Outlook sync, but based on the reviews these appear to be problematic. I'm sure someone is working on a better sync/bluetooth solution, either an aftermarket developer or Samsung.

    Outlook 2010 would not sync with Captivate when I got my phone so I went with gSyncit - a add on to Outlook and it has been working great to sync with Gmail - so I never have to connect my phone to have my contacts and calendar updated

    What if you put a new contact into your Captivate phone. Does it update your Outlook on your PC?
